Talking I need share some pics of a blade (19 pics)

Took them in a museum yesterday. This museum permits visitors taking some photographies.

Koftgari on Blade,metal of handle and sheath are silver. As a hundreds year old blade, it looks quite new. AND what specially confuse me is the meaning of the words on blade. They are so interesting though not being translated.
